Iceland, an always complicated rival for Spain

Madrid, March 28 (EFE) .- The Icelandic team, which will face Spain this Tuesday at the Riazor, was always a complicated and difficult rival for La Roja, who could never beat the Nordic team by more than a goal advantage. The historical balance is totally favorable to the Spanish team. He has won six of the nine games played, has drawn two and has lost only one, in which he has scored ten goals and conceded six. However, the Icelandic team, even in the times when it had not yet approached the elite or had played a major competition final phase, has always put up a fight and has never given in easily despite the Spanish superiority. They have always lost in Spain, but it has been 1-0 or 2-1. Even as a local they have started two draws and won on September 25, 1991 in the qualifying phase for the European Championship against the team led by Vicente Miera (2-0). Goals from Orlygsson and former national team manager Eyjolfur Sverrisson at the Laugardalsvoller stadium sealed what is the biggest result of these clashes to date. The history of the matches between the most selected began to leave a written record on October 27, 1982, at the La Rosaleda stadium in Malaga. Spain won 1-0, with a goal from Juan Carlos Pedraza, in the qualifying phase for the 1984 European Championship. Francisco and the Osasunist Martín. On May 29, 1983, Spain returned the visit and won by the same result in Reykjavik. The goal of the team then led by the late Miguel Muñoz was signed by Antonio Maceda. The third time they faced each other was on June 12, 1985, in the Icelandic capital, and again there was victory for Miguel Muñoz’s team (1-2), with goals from Manu Sarabia and Marcos Alonso. It was in the qualifying phase of the Mexico’86 World Cup and in the second leg, on September 25 of the same year at the Benito Villamarín stadium in Seville, Spain won 2-1 with goals from Poli Rincón and Rafael Gordillo. Five years later, on October 10, 1990, in the run-up to the European Championship in Sweden’92, the Spaniards and Icelanders met again. The next time at the Benito Villamarín stadium is the team led by Luis Suárez for 2-1 with Dianas by Emilio Butragueño and Carlos Muñoz. It was the prelude to the 2-0 return of a disastrous classification that left Spain out of the continental tournament. After drawing 0-0 in a friendly in the Icelandic capital in August 2006, they met again on the way to Euro 2008, in which Spain would end up beginning its most glorious era with two consecutive continental titles and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The team coached by Luis Aragonés won at the Ono Estadi in Palma on March 28, 2007 by 1-0 with Andrés Iniesta scoring ten minutes from the final, and in the second leg, half a year later in Reykjavík, the current player of the Japanese Vissel Kobe and former Barcelona player saved a point with a goal also in the final stretch to balance Emil Hallfredsson’s goal and began to mend a tortuous path towards the tournament in Austria and Switzerland that ended up crowning La Roja in Vienna with the goal of Fernando Torres against Germany. – Clashes between Spain and Iceland: Date city result competition —– —— ——— ———– 27.10.82 Málaga Spain 1 – Iceland 0 class.
